Paper Trails of Our Ancestors

This section houses our collection of the documents we've accumulated over the course of our research. Most are records we've found in online databases or open repositories elsewhere, and others have been transcribed and shared with us. Proper credit is given wherever applicable and possible not only to reference the origins of information but as a respectful acknowledgement.

We have not verified or validated every piece of information. What we have included here supports what we consider ample (not necessarily exhaustive) evidences pertaining to our ancestors. So even if the document is an original or reproduced copy, please keep in mind that there are varying levels of inaccuracies inherent in everything from firsthand accounts to transcriptions to handwritten genealogies passed down through the generations. Always use information judiciously.
